Bosc Pear and Cranberry Relish
Expect this recipe to almost be like a jalapeno jelly. Serve it with your holiday turkey and stuffing or on top of a brick of cream cheese with crackers as a snack or appetizer. If you chose the latter I suggest dicing up a pear and sprinkling it over the top as an accent. The display is beautiful and the flavor will have everyone going for seconds.
